Urban Camping. Have you Ever?

We have our city camping going on full force.  Our tent is up in our living room, and instead of the stars above, we will be watching Princess Mononoke through the front zip down flap of our tent.  It's not the Outsiders, but the movie store up the street didn't have that one in tonight.  

We grilled our dogs and sausages, had dinner together and made a super yummy drink (*see below for recipe) for the night.  And we got to roast marshmallows for s'mores.  Right in our backyard!  It was awesome.  Lily didn't join us at first and After a minute or two, Tallulah said, "I am going to tell Lily we are having a lot of fun and she shouldn't miss it."  They might actually have a future together, as sisters.

Here are some shot from the evening:
One gigantic marshmallow, in flames, on our grill.


"I can' t eat this fast enough."

"Go Felix!  and wow!  look at my hands...sooooo sticky"

Lily, in the tent, camping.

And Good Night, everyone.  I am exhausted from all this camping.
